Late Modern English is a fruitful period for linguistic research of all kinds. This became evident once again at the Third Late Modern English Conference, held at the University of Leiden in 2007, from which the papers presented in this volume derive. Themes dealt with include the nature, form and effects of prescription, an issue of increasing importance during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries; grammars and dictionaries produced during the period; specific topics in Late Modern English grammar and lexis; the language of letters; and methodological issues in the study of Late Modern English as such.
